2012 Celler el Masroig Sola Fred Blanc
Please call or email to order.
Celler el Masroig Sola Fred is a white blend from one of our favorite wineries, Celler el Masroig, in the Montsant region of northeast Spain. The Montsant region received DO status in 2001 and lies west of Barcelona bordering on the north of Priorat. Celler el Masroig was founded in 1917 as the Cooperativa of El Masroig. It is an association of grape and olive oil producers with approximately 300 members who are associated owners of the company. The winemaker is the young and dynamic Carles Escolar, who strongly believes in the potential of the Montsant appellation. Jay Miller of Wine Advocate praised the winery in April 2008: “Celler El Masroig, located in the up-and-coming region of Montsant, is a role model for how a cooperative ought to function. The winery keeps only the best grapes and sells off the rest to other producers, some of whom are quite well known. The wines are very fairly priced and offer an excellent price to quality ratio from the top to the bottom of the portfolio." We consider Sola Fred Blanc a Spanish white wine gem!
Celler el Masroig Sola Fred Blanc is a blend of 80% Macabeo and 20% Grenache Blanc. The grapes are selected from old vineyards aged between 30 and 50 years for the Macabeo. The Grenache Blanc grapes come from younger vines. It was harvested early in order to preserve the fruity notes, the natural freshness and acidity from the grapes. Fermented cold in stainless steel tanks. The wine is clear bright yellow, light-medium in body, with a nose of white flowers followed by tropical notes. Fresh and lively with good acidity, it is a versatile wine that goes especially well with summer salads, grilled chicken and seafood. It is also excellent on its own or as an aperitif.
